Sequoia Henning

Sequoia's life journey has been and continues to be a consistent cultivation of her spiritual development, through study and ongoing practice of yoga and the healing arts.  In her teenage years, Sequoia began to study esoteric knowledge secretly, by joining a regular study group on the topics of chakras, meditation and crystal healing. Her interest in the healing arts branched out, with the study and practice of Tai chi for four years, before making her first of many visits to India.    When in India Sequoia realised she needed help from addictions. She enrolled into a strict yoga ashram. After six weeks of practicing asanas, mantra and pranayama twice a day, she transformed and healed from her addictions. It was the beginning of her love affair with yoga. Sequoia's yoga path started in the lineage of Iyengar. She expanded her yoga studies in the tradition of Hatha and Ashtanga from various teachers in India.  The love of vibrational healing was also a heartfelt calling for Sequoia. She started to study about mantras with Mata Gi, one of the main singers, at Pramath nikatan in Rishikesh, India. Her knowledge continued learning about how to use Tibetan bowls and other sound tools for healing. Her love for healing with sound began in 2001.   In 2006, she completed a three-month intensive and received her 200 Hr Yoga Teacher Training certificate from Pyramid Yoga in Thailand. In 2008, she completed a one-month pranayama  teachers training course with Shri.O. P. Tiwari at Kavaladhama yogic institute in India. Her love for pranayama began. Sequoia studied many different healing modalities, which allowed her to run a successful healing centre for eight years in Canada. Sequoia’s passion for life was heighten through her personal self-healing journey. She had a severe case of Crohn's disease. She healed herself naturally through the modalities she had been studying in previous years including mantras, toning, Pranayama, visualisation and learning to love herself.   Regardless of what Sequoia is teaching her intention is always the same, to inspire, encourage others to listen to their inner wisdom and inner power. For seven years Sequoia was one of the main teachers with Tribe- yoga, international teacher trainings in India and Thailand.    Sequoia’s "attitude is of gratitude" for all she has experienced and yet to discover about her spirit. Her other passions include singing, ceremonies, climbing mountains, spending time alone in nature and playing music.  Sequoia now lives and teaches Yoga Teacher Trainings internationally, sound healing, and breathing retreats. She shares her time between Bali, India and Canada.
